Every year my friend Robyn and I make it out for an annual trip to Lindley’s Farm to pick their pesticide free strawberries. This year (with Omi in tow) I met up with Robyn and some of her friends for a surprise wedding shower berry picking session followed by a strawberry social held in her honour.
The strawberry season was a little late this year, which means there’s still some time to go and pick your own! As of July 2nd there’s about 10 more days of good strawberry picking left at Lindley’s.
The strawberries bushes were full and beautifully ripe. It took me all of about 10 minutes to pick this one basket.
After we filled our baskets and made a quick wardrobe change into summer dresses, everyone headed back downtown to enjoy strawberry inspired treats and tea in the church parlour. A classy affair!
It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning celebrating summer and Robyn -the bride to be!
